Jacob Tremblay as Peter Carpenter

Jacob Tremblay was a Screen Actors Guild Award nominee for his memorable performance as Jack in Room, starring opposite Academy Award winner Brie Larson as Ma. Among the other accolades that he received for his portrayal was the Critics’ Choice Award for Best Young Actor. Lenny Abrahamson’s film based on the bestselling book by Emma Donoghue won the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival and was Oscar-nominated for Best Picture. 

The young Canadian actor began his career in 2010, and was featured in several national and international commercials. Booking his first audition for film, he was cast in Raja Gosnell’s The Smurfs 2, as the son of the characters played by Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays. 

His feature film credits include Jordan Roberts’ Burn Your Maps, opposite Vera Farmiga; Farren Blackburn’s Shut In, with Naomi Watts of The Book of Henry; Mike Flanagan’s Before I Wake; Stephen Chbosky’s upcoming Wonder, with Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson; and, currently in production, Shane Black’s The Predator, alongside Boyd Holbrook. 

When not making movies, Mr. Tremblay enjoys snowboarding, watching ‘70s and ‘80s movies including Star Wars ones, and playing with Lego.
